For VPN stats I usually use "SHOW VPN-SESSIONDB"   That will give you a nice summary.  

For inside hosts though, the cisco will count licenses based on how many unique translations it handles in the xlate table (IIRC).  

So a "show xlate count"  should give you what you want there....  

Hope that helps.

I tried show xlate count and this is the output.
66 in use, 733 most used
How does this relate to the 50 licenses installed? I would think I couldn't go past 50 due to my 50 installed licenses.

It should be 50 unique translations from inside hosts even if they xlate to more than 1 IP....   That's usually how I've taken a quick snapshot count in the past.
